Speakers

Dilma Rousseff
President of Brazil
KCSM 09/24/2013
She urged the UN to join Brazil in building a new internet framework that protects the privacy and sovereignty of all nations. “Brazil will put forth proposals aimed at establishing multilateral civil framework for internet governance and use. As well as measures to insure effective protection of the data and information trafficking through the internet.”
Chuck Todd
NBC News Chief White House Correspondent
MSNBCW 09/24/2013
This NSA issue has really been a complicated mess politically, not just for the president domestically and we've seen it, frankly for both parties the establishment has been beaten up by its populist wings but around the world, diplomatically this has complicated things. Chuck Todd, thank you so much.
Eric Schmidt
Executive Chairman of Google
CNBC 09/25/2013
First place, with the FISA courts we're not allowed to discuss it and the law is clear. We can't talk about it. There were other allegations, for example, that the NSA had a direct connection to Google. Those were all false. We actually looked to make sure that isn't true. If they had one, it would be illegal and I'm sure they don't.
Keith Alexander
General, Director of the National Security Agency, Chief of the Central Security Service and Commander of the United States Cyber Command.

But I do have that ask there and that ask is upfront. We need your help. We need to get these facts out. We need our nation to understand why we need these tools and what those tools mean to civil liberty and privacy and what they mean to defend in this country.

And so what's hyped up in a lot of the reporting is that we're listening to your phone calls, we're reading your emails. That's not true. You know, Edmond Burke has this great saying, all that it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. We can't do anything if we don't know the threat is there.
Eric Schmidt
CEO Google
CNBC 09/25/2013
Schmidt: The NSA claims it's doing what the law says. Seems to me if the NSA is watching that amount of domestic material, we really gotta wonder if that's the broad mission. We don't really know if all the Snowden revelations are true. But if they are true, the NSA has been watching an awful lot of activity on the internet. What Google has asked, is we want to legally tell you how much the FISA courts ask us for information. We can't even legally answer that question. I think we would be stronger as a country with more transparency about what we're doing. I really believe that. I disagree with the security folks who say, we can't tell that. They already know. What we really want… We're stronger when people know what's going on and they're helping us make it better.
Eric Schmidt
CEO Google
CNBC 09/25/2013
Schmidt: First place, with the FISA courts we're not allowed to discuss it and the law is very clear. We can't talk about it. There were other allegations, for example, that the NSA had a direct connection to Google. Those were all false. We’ve actually looked to make sure that isn't true. If they had one, it would be illegal and I'm sure they don't.
Dianne Feinstein
U.S. Senator (D-CA), Chairman of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
CSPAN 09/26/2013
Section 702 of FISA known as upstream collection. This comprises about 10% of all collection that takes place under 702 and occurs WHEN NSA obtains internet communications such as e-mails from certain U.S. companies that operate the internet background (backbone), i.e. the companies that own and operate the domestic the telecommunication lines over which the internet traffic flows.
Dianne Feinstein
U.S. Senator (D-CA), Chairman of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
CSPAN 09/26/2013
… the NSA, while trying to acquire e-mails to, from, or about an overseas target realized it was inadvertently acquiring other e-mails, including some e-mails sent between persons within the United States, that happen to be bundled with the e- mail messages NSA was trying to collect.
Dianne Feinstein
U.S. Senator (D-CA), Chairman of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
CSPAN 09/26/2013
Feinstein: I believe the leaks of classified programs and the way those leaks have been portrayed in the media often inaccurately or without appropriate context has led to an unfortunate, but very real amount of public skepticism. And if I might say distrust unfortunately of the intelligence community and the national Security Agency in particular. And this exists throughout the American public and it (exists internationally)
